CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Robotics & Automation (R&A) Technologies have the potential to transform 
and improve the lives of humanity by addressing the world’s toughest  
challenges. The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society - Special Interest 
Group on Humanitarian Technology (RAS-SIGHT) is engaging the academic 
and non-academic community to propose viable solutions in R&A to address 
relevant world problems through several initiatives that include 
challenges in robotics conferences, funding projects, establishment of 
collaboration networks with academia, industry, and governments.

RAS-SIGHT is soliciting proposals that when implemented would improve 
the quality of life for the beneficiaries. Some important points worth 
noting:
- The problem that you propose to solve should utilize robotics and 
automation technologies
- It is strongly encouraged that the solution be developed and deployed 
with active involvement from the community or the end-users that it is 
intended to benefit
- Sustainability beyond the completion of the project will be a key 
consideration

For details on how to submit a proposal and for additional information, 
see *http://www.ieee-ras.org/about-ras/latest-news/687*.
Deadline: December 10, 2015.

All submissions and questions should be sent to Raj Madhavan, Chair, 
RAS-SIGHT via email at <raj.madhavan at ieee.org>.
